Zmanda Does Cloud Storage for Less with Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| Zmanda is adding new features to its cloud-based backup 
| offering to better compete with market leaders EMC (NYSE: 
| EMC) and Symantec (NASDAQ: SYMC).
| Zmanda uses open source-based backup software and Amazon's 
| (NASDAQ: AMZN) Simple Storage Service (S3) to best EMC's 
| MozyPro and Symantec on price. Now the company hopes its 
| latest features will catch on with small and mid-sized 
| businesses (SMBs) looking to back up their Microsoft 
| Windows environments while meeting security and compliance 
| demands.

,----[ Quote ]
| Enter a new player in small and medium business backup, Zmanda. They mashed
| together two money-saving tools to drop the costs of online backup lower than
| most of their competitors. By adding open source backup software with the
| storage infrastructure of Amazon's S3, they multiply savings. You can use
| some Zmanda products to backup locally, but I strongly (repeat, strongly)
| recommend you also save a copy of all data offsite as well.
